A new serie where I will feature some inspiring fashion pictures of my current favourite trends. I am starting this week with neutrals tones and some subtle touch of camel which I would love to wear this winter. You can find below a few items that I would shop to add to my wardrobe. And I need the two scarves on the pictures, anyone knows where are they from? What are your favourite trend for this winter?

And you have that song stuck in your head for the rest of the day now. Thank you Charlotte. Not such a subtle title but I think it is now clear what I will talk to you about today; my favourite products for face and base make up.
The first product I use
(after moisturizer of course) is foundation. After trying a lot of different foundations from the drugstore, I finally comited to a more pricy one. The NARS Sheer Glow. It is the favourite of so many beauty gurus and I know why. I have a skin that tend to be quite oily, however, this foundation is really amazing. It will gives you a glowy yet natural skin effect. You can chose from so many shades, I personally own the shade Deauville. It is super easy to blend, and it doesn't feel caky at all. It has a medium coverage but you can definetly build it up.
For concealer, my favourite is going to the Naked Skin concealer by Urban Decay. This concealer is on point. The applicator is quite big and it makes the application super easy. It is also very lightweight and very easy to blend. I also find it very luminous which is perfect in our new "highlight on fleek" world. I have to say that I also adore the Nars Creamy Radiant concealer, but it is a little more expensive. For that reason, I would repurchase the Urban Decay one.
Finally, my favourite setting powder is ... a drugstore product! Yes it happens sometimes. I discovered the Revlon Color Stay powder a few months ago after hearing a french youtuber with oily skin raving about it. I used the Rimmel Stay Matte powder for the longest time before I discovered this one, which is another blogger classic but this one is much better. It keeps my skin matte for, I will say a good 8 hours and won't leave me as shiny as the former one I was using.
Here are my top three favourite, please let me know yours in the comment, I am willing to try a new high end foundation, adapted to oily skin! I am waiting for your recommendation!

Hello loves! I hope you all had a Merry Christmas with your family or loved one and a happy new year. Well I know that new years posts are all around and I am here doing a make up review. Honestly I am not super inspired to do anything related to 2015 and 2016 yet. I would have a lot to say though but I am in a period where I don't really want to talk about anything personal here. Who knows maybe I will come up with something in the coming weeks if I feel like writting.
Anyway here is my review on the Cocoa Contour palette from Too Faced. Last winter I remember buying one of the Too Faced chocolate bronzer and being a total fan of it. I then tried NARS Laguna and put the Too Faced one on the side but as I was hitting pan on it, I thought I would ask for a contouring palette for Christmas. Since I knew for sure the bronzers were good, I decided to get this one.
Packaging wise, once again Too Faced is simple on point. The palette is absolutely cute and comes with two bronzers, a matte light face powder and a highlighter. You also get a cute little brush that I find really convinient to contour. The palette also comes with a big mirror wich is once again really usefull. Concerning the products itself, I have a mix review. First I love the smell, it has the typical cacao sent of the Too Faced Chocolate range but it is not too overpowering. The first shade, Light Cocoa is a good setting powder, you can use it under your eyes to set your concealer, or if you have a faire skin tone, all around your face to set your foundation. I also love the shade Medium Cocoa that is a good shade for doing contouring, it is a non orangy bronzer that would suit faire to medium skin tone.
I am much more skeptical about the last two shades. Dark Cocoa is too dark for my skin tone, but I think I can still use it as an eye shadow for exemple since I really like to wear warm brown smoky eyes. But the real problem of the palette for me is the highlight shade Pop of Light. As in a lot of other cheeks or contour palette, it is a very shimmery shade, full of glitters that in my opinion don't really reflect the light very nicely. It is more like applying glitter on your cheekbones than a nice and settle highlight. However, I overall really like the palette! As usual you can't really be disapointed with Too Faced, and I can't wait to try more and more products from the brand!
